HRH Prince Michael of Kent

RemitRadar - Global Ambassador   

For centuries, people have left home and crossed countries, continents and oceans in search of better opportunities for themselves and their families. Today, more than 240 million people live outside their countries of birth. This expanding global community, much in the front news today, will send home USD 450 Billion each year to support families and will pay a high price to do so, or be forced to use unregulated informal channels putting their hard earned cash at risk. I will be delighted if my role helps these people retain more value and enjoy more security when sending money home.
